CARNO host Llandudno Albion in the fourth round of the Welsh Trophy on Saturday (1.30).

The Ty Brith clash pits newly installed Carno manager Gwynfor Edwards against a Llandudno Albion side currently second in North Wales Alliance One.

Edwards said: “We are definitely strong favourites. The atmosphere in the camp is great and the squad is coming together well.

“We’re playing great football at the moment and have been a bit unfortunate in the last couple of games.”

Edwards said the return of Ioan Humphreys had been key.

“He is unplayable at the moment, in red hot form” said Edwards who also made three new signings in midweek. “Young Steff Evans really impressed at Llanidloes last week too.”

Midfielder Zach Evans arrives from local rivals Llanidloes Town while also arriving at Ty Broth is Liam Andrew from MMP-NL Mid Wales League One rivals Kerry and Sam Barker from Caersws.”

Meanwhile Berriew hit the road with a trip to Wrexham League One side Lex XI.

Manager Dave Jones said: “It’s a trip into the unknown as we don’t know a great deal about them.

“A trip to Wrexham area sides is never easy but we are confident having only lost once since the end of August and hopeful of making it to the last 16.”

Welshpool Town also head to Wrexham with Cefn Mawr Rangers their hosts.

Elsewhere Radnor Valley fly Radnorshire’s flag as the area’s final representative in the trophy at home to fallen Welsh football giants Mold Alexandra.
